Muslim actress sexually harassed in India

Zaira Wasim on Sunday alleged that she was molested by a co-passenger on an Air Vistara flight from Delhi to Mumbai.

Zaira said she was on an Air Vistara flight from Delhi to Mumbai when a co-passenger sitting behind her put up his feet on her armrest.

“So, I was in a flight travelling from Delhi to Mumbai today and right behind me one middle-aged man who made my two-hour journey miserable. I tried to record it on phone to understand it better because the cabin lights were dimmed, I failed to get it…

“The lights were dimmed, so it was even worse. It continued for another five to ten minutes and then I was sure of it. He kept nudging my shoulder and continued to move his foot up and down my back and neck,” she said in the video post.

In the video, which she recorded immediately after the flight, she broke down several times.

“This is not done, I am disturbed… Is this how you’re going to take care of girls? This is not the way anybody should be made to feel. This is terrible!” she said.

“No one will help us if we don’t decide to help ourselves. And this is the worst thing,” she added.

In a statement released on twitter, Air Vistara said, “We are carrying out detailed investigation and will support Zaira in every way required. We have zero tolerance for such behaviour.”
